Working with Toolbars
Toolbars contain buttons you can click to carry out commands you use frequently. Dreamweaver provides 4 different toolbars—Style Rendering, Document, Standard, and Coding—and the Insert panel for you to use to execute commands. The Insert panel provides the commonly used commands for inserting various types of objects. The Insert panel, displays subpanels, such as Common, Layout, Forms, Data, Spry, Text, and Favorites, you can use to access buttons. The Style Rendering toolbar allows you to work with different media types. The Document toolbar appears by default under an open document tab and allows you to change views, specify a title, manage files, preview pages, enable or disable page view options, and perform document validation. The Standard toolbar provides common file and editing commands, such as Open, Save, Print, Cut, Copy, Paste, Undo, and Redo. The Coding toolbar is available in Code and Split views and makes it easier to work with code. You can quickly show or hide the toolbars you need or are no longer using to customize the way you use Dreamweaver.
